Swallowtail Upcycled Giftbag

All of my Stampin' Up! orders come with brown paper used as a packing filler, so here's a fun way to upcycle that FREE craft material.  I folded the brown paper in half and stitched the sides together with my sewing machine to form a pouch.  I then stamped the lovely swallowtail butterfly on the front and accented it with a simple strip of core-dinations cardstock that I embossed with the alphabet press embossing folder then lightly sanded.  The "Around Array" stamp set provided a nice finishing sentiment for fast and sweet giftbags. To close i simply folded the top over to the back and closed it with a sticker.  I've put bags of licorice bullets in here, what would you put in yours?
